MRS. AMERICA
April 29, 2020  | By David Bianculli

Hulu, 3:00 a.m. ET

 
Tonight’s new episode (with this series, Hulu is dropping new installments weekly, rather than all at once) is called “Phyllis & Fred & Brenda & Marc.” Presumably, that’s a sly nod to the late ’60s movie Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, a comedy-drama about would-be suburban swingers. Except in this hour of Mrs. America, these couples aren’t strange bedfellows at all: They’re combatants in an on-air TV debate – on Tom Snyder’s Tomorrow show. On one side, Phyllis Schlafly (Cate Blachett) and her husband Fred (Roger Slattery), attacking the Equal Rights Amendment; on the other side, liberal attorneys Brenda Feigen-Fasteau (Ari Graynor, pictured) and her husband Marc (Adam Brody). Last week, in a similar battle for media attention, Phyllis emerged as the victor. This week, things may be different.
